Mission: Our mission is to empower youth to erdicate illiteracy and lead their communities out of poverty. Reading village transforms lives through literacy. Leveraging reading and education as mechanisms to end poverty, we create the conditions for youth to discover their true potential and become agents of change in the world. Through collaboration and innovation, whole communities unleash their power to flourish under their own resources and creativity.
Programs: Leaders and readers: we provided scholarships and leadership development training for 50 guatemalan teens, enabling them to stay in high school. In return, these teens gave back to their own communities leading reading activities that reached approximately 3,000 children. The teens in two of our communities applied their leadership skills to open the first-ever libraries in their villages.
